This is the Samuel Patterson Homestead and dates back to the mid 1800s. My understanding is that the Patterson family was one of the first to settle in the area. It is rumored to be a stop on the Underground Railroad. There is an old schoolhouse building to the left of the house. I believe it was purchased in the mid 1950s by the LeVeque family. They obviously did a lot of work and made this quite the estate. It's beautiful. Much of the surrounding land has been sold for residential development and as of May, 2015, the LeVeque family heirs have listed it for sale. There is a lot of historical significance with this property.

To add to my previous comment, this house is located on Africa Road - very close to the I71 bridge.

The house remains but the barn was torn down and is now a subdivision
